Toho Pictures has released a new trailer for their feature-length Godzilla anime, Godzilla: Monster Planet, now renamed Godzilla: Planet Of The Monsters, which will arrive on Netflix on November 17.
Gojira had a very brief appearance at the end of the first trailer. However, in the new un-subtitled Japanese trailer, he’s out in full force, shooting blue laser beams from his mouth.
In the year 2048, the human race is forced to leave Earth after decades of losing against Godzilla and other giant monsters. They take a twenty-year journey to another planet called Tau Ceti, but upon arrival, they discover that the planet has become uninhabitable. As living conditions on their ship deteriorate, a young man named Haruo spearheads a movement to return to Earth and take it back from the monsters. The ship successfully makes the return voyage, but the crew discovers that twenty thousand years have passed and Earth’s ecosystem has evolved, with Godzilla reigning atop the new food chain.
Godzilla: Monster Planet is from Polygon Pictures (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) and directed by Kobun Shizuno and Hiroyuki Shshita, with a script from Gen Urobuchi and stars Mamoru Miyano, Takahiro Sakurai, Kana Hanazawa, Tomokazu Sugita, Yuki Kaji, Junichi Suwabe, Daisuke Ono, Kenta Miyake, kenyu Horiuchi, Kazuya Nakai, and Kazuhiro Yamaji.
